After the landslide victory by the Democrats last week, the GOP decided to bring back the guy who thought America would be much better if we didn't have the Civil Rights Movement or Desegragation.
Apparently they think that the answer to their loss is to get back to their racist, anti civil rights, pro-segragation roots.
In 1948 Strom Thurmond ran for President under the "State's Rights Party", who's entire platform was segragation.
In 2002, when attending the 100th birthday Party for Strom Thurmond, Trent Lott said this:
"I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years."
Lets be clear, by "all these problems" Trent Lott is talking about those darn "uppity" Blacks and their Civil Rights movement.
